Odds & Ends

Well I think that I complain enough about my kiddos on here, so I guess I should share when they're not driving me nuts too. To start with, Derek has turned into an angel baby the last few days... he sits on the floor and plays happily with toys for really long stretches of time. What a change! He still wants to eat the early bird special sometime between 0430-06oo but I guess you can't have it all. And in another pleasant turn of events, for the last several days Alex has actually been telling me when she needs to go potty and refraining from going in her pants. Yeah! This may have something to do with me telling her that she can't go to school if she's still having accidents. Truthfully, there's no way I could endure another winter cooped up in the house with her so she's going to preschool even if not one more drop of pee lands in the potty-- but don't tell her I said so! We enrolled her in a preschool here and she will go three days a week starting at the end of the summer. She is very excited and tells me often that she will be going to school "after we go to Alabama and after the long, hot summer."
Alabama, you ask?
Yup, it's our idea of a dream getaway :) Ha! We'll all be tagging along to Josh's Air Force school there for 5 weeks. The catch? We'll be staying in one room with a kitchenette. It's been done before by many of our friends (although many of them only had one kid at the time). However, Josh and I are WAY less easy-going than most of our friends so I anticipate much drama to come. Don't worry, I'll keep you posted on all the drama as it unfolds. Sure, what else will I have to do since we wont be able to have TV or lights on after bedtime at 7pm. Oh boy...

Erin, what I would give to be there with Mike at SOS.

Well, obviously I wouldn't give $4000 and 2 days of travel w/ 2 toddlers. Scratch that.

What I would give to be there with Mike at SOS, cheaply and painlessly!

Oh my... I didn't even think about the DVR. I'm sorry, it will be hard! The kids will do great ;-)

Okay, I know that SOS isn't that exciting, but can we have some pics or something? :) And check in on my hubby while you're at it and make sure he's staying out of trouble :)
